* Got the funniest singing early birthday card from BILLYtheKidster today and want
to express my appreciation!
Yes, it's true that my hair is turning gray
Do I look in the mirror? No, turn away
The candles on my cake will be ablaze
As my memories just seem to turn to haze
But I'll take the birthday greeting as you intend
'Cause it's great to have such a thoughtful, witty friend!
Your birthday card just left me roarin'
And my spirits now are soarin'
As my bones creak to the melody of age
